This stuff is very new to me and I am finding some of it very interesting. As a result, some of my research has spawned a few questions.

When building a 4-bay antenna, it sounds as if the length of the whiskers and the spacing of the whiskers plays a vital roll in the range of the UHF channels that I can expect to see. Could someone explain this in more detail? The UHF stations that I'm trying to get range from channel 16 to 64.

Also, is the reflector absolutely necessary? The 2 major stations are only about 12 miles away (channels 16 and 47). What roll does the reflector play?

Is one type of metal better than another for the construction of the whiskers?

Thanks in advance!!!
